Colour oxy and a soft child toothbrush or cotton wool + patience! Or vodka + cotton wool then wipe with water in both cases. Dry stuffed with newspaper somewhere warm but not glaring bright to avoid fading.
The toe stains may have an element of oil in them from your skin, so yes, rubbing in some detergent and leaving it for a while before rinsing off might help - but don't soak the shoe itself, obviously, as most shoes are held together with glue and my experience of fabric shoes is that the glue doesn't hold together too well when soaked!
